Stalk-Eyed Flies… It Gets Longer!
I have an earlier post about Stalk-Eyed Flies here, including some videos: The Story Behind Stalk Eyed Flies
#1 Relatively long, but not as long. This Stalk-Eyed Fly was quite easily spooked and kept walking around
#2 做人要看开一点, ok?
#3 A different species, with closer resemblance to a form of hammerhead flies
#4 Father of all Stalk-Eyed Flies, with an eye-span beyond the length of the fly itself! Wonder how many mates he’d get?
Some simple shots from the rest of the day…
#5 A pond-skater with prey
#6 Simple pond-skater shot
#7 There were many of them, but not easy to get low enough to capture them, especially with a long lens
#8 This dragonfly was eating a bee just before I took this shot. Remnants of the leg still remains.
#9 A Whip Spider (Ariamnes flagellum) guarding her egg-sac
#10 Spent the rest of the time shooting this little fly, while waiting for the rain to stop
#11 Here’s what I meant by shooting in the rain. lol. Picture taken by Victor while he was resting on his chair
#12 Some said that this is a hover fly. I’m not too sure yet?
#13 The sun came out (but still raining) and formed a nice green background for me
#14 The shade I provided seemed to attract more of them!
#15 And MORE!
#16 They decided to show me their asses all at once
